  • I feel so lucky that we have a local Sudbury school, and Sunset Sudbury is as good as it gets. My daughter loves going to school there. In the morning I am frequently moving too slow for her, and I hear "Mom! Can we go to school now?" The fact that she is enthusiastic about school makes me so happy. The staff is wonderful, they are invested in and attached to the students. It is also just amazing to see how the students keep each other in line through the democratic process. I love that my daughter feels empowered in the school, and in her education in general. Five apples, I wish there were more to give!

  • My son loves going to this school! Every morning, he is excited to leave the house, and grumbles when we come to get him in the afternoon. Sunset Sudbury is a school that has allowed me to feel completely at ease with leaving him, knowing that he is not going to be treated unfairly by anyone, and any problems that arise are fairly handled. I love the idea that he gets to make so many wonderful decisions for himself, and through this he continues to feel empowered.

  • I love this school so much. It has been a life-changer for my seven-year old son. The school allows him to indulge his interests in science and technology, while supporting his artistic side. This has been an amazing experience for us.

  • My daughter was a very shy and timid little girl when she started the school this past fall. Since then she has become so confident and comfortable talking to people of all ages. I know she has gotten that because she feels respected and listened to by the adults and kids at the school. She has also developed an intense interest in writing and learning foreign languages. I love that she can find and pursue her own passions all day long.

  • My boys love Sunset Sudbury School! Each day they pack their lunch with excitement and anticipation for their school day. I have seen growth and development in their learning, knowledge and understanding of people and the world around them. I wouldn’t send them to any other school. And they love it so much, they wouldn’t go anywhere else!

  • This school is revolutionary! I knew as soon as I read the philosophy that this is the school of the future and this is where I wanted my daughter to be. Now that we've been there almost an entire school year I can tell you that Sunset Sudbury School keeps her love of learning alive and promotes all the important skills needed in today's world. She has the freedom and trust she needs to explore on her own terms at her own pace.
    She loves going to school and being a part of an exciting community, and I love knowing that her creativity and curiosity will be celebrated and encouraged.

  • I love how students and staff are treated with equal respect, trust, and responsibilities. Here the children can write up the adults when we carelessly leave our napkins on the table or leave a door open. At the same time the kids respect their consequences and often times redeem themselves with pride, when they make mistakes.

  • phenomenal school! I love the freedom and real life skills my girls are experiencing and enjoying. A parent wants nothing more than for their children to be healthy and happy, this school provides that. There is no unnecessary stress, no imaginary competition, no segregation, just a whole and healthy environment for the family and their children.

  • We love this school! My child is able to explore and learn freely at his own pace. He is learning about the importance of responsibility within relationships. He is figuring things out for himself - now that is real learning!

  • Our daughter Started attending school at Sunset Sudbury in January 2011. I feel so blessed to have a school like this in South Florida. Our daughter is a very sensitive child that is thriving in Sunset Sudbury. Everyone asks us, "how do you get your child to learn anything without teachers forcing her to learn?" I also had the same questions. I watched our daughter closely and at first it took her time to adjust to the freedom that she has been given. She had been in a traditional school in the past. Our daughter now has a self interest in learning and she is much happier. The staff at Sunset Sudbury are very caring and extremely understanding of the children that attend.
